Rear Bumper: Gives your Jeep an off-road look with high clearance end caps for better angles for those steeper inclines or declines. Made from high quality steel to handle the off-road while still accommodating your back up sensors.

DV8 Offroad Rear Bumper with Frame Mounted Tire Carrier Reviews
My JL uses DV8 for both the front and rear bumpers. I really like their products however there are difficulties when it comes to installing them as well as the end result look.
In regards to the rear bumper and tire carrier, multiple issues arose.
1. Instructions are VERY vague, do a poor job of stating which hardware to use where, lack of product inventory to make sure everything is there (especially with the condition the box arrived in), and at times are completely missing steps for things to do (relocation of the back up camera and third light.
2. I have larger size tires for sure (37” Mickey Thompsons) and the weight of the tire when on the carrier with it pulled out to allow opening of the tailgate causes the right side of the bumper to sag down, thus messing with the symmetry of the bumper on each side. I’ve tried tightening down bolts tighter, removing and reinstalling the bumper to recheck proper install and alignment, as well as putting more bolts in that aren’t in the instructions. Nothing has worked.
3. Due to the amount of hinges that this tire carrier has in order to let the tire swing down when removing it, the number has an inherent tilt backwards away from the Jeep when in the up and locked position. This is partly due to the hinges and partly due to the retaining hole used to hold the carrier up against the tailgate.
Overall, DV8 has helped to get through things and make the most of this bumper. Spending this much money though and having this much hassle is another issue though and truly up to whoever buys it. I had these same problems when I bought the front bumper as well as the sway bar disconnect skid plate.
